Events Round-Up: January – March (*PICS*)

A round-up of a few of the events I’ve been going to over the past few months, from book launch parties to signings, reading groups, author panels, radio guest spots, and all that good stuff. (For upcoming events, please check out my Events page.)

January

Launch of Defender

Birmingham Waterstone’s

Thursday 12th January. I had a great interview from Blake Woodham (of Brum Radio) and around 100 friends, family and supporters came out in force. I couldn’t have asked for a better launch for Defender.

The ever lovely Jackie Molloy invited me along to Birmingham Mobile Library’s book group. They even fed me cupcakes! Fantastic bunch of people.

FEBRUARY

Amery Club, Willenhall –  Meet & Greet

A local book signing event that turned into a mini-reunion with these lovely lasses; I hadn’t seen most of them for more than fifteen years :O

MARCH

 An Interview with G X Todd – Reading Groups AGM

Stourbridge Library

It’s always a pleasure to spend time with book lovers, and you can’t get much bigger fans of books than reading group members. Annie and Luke (from Dudley Libraries) did their usual stirling job of looking after me.

wordpool_white_guy – Blackpool Arts & Libraries Festival of Words
In Conversation with Kit de Waal (author of My Name is Leon) – Layton Library, Blackpool

An annual festival held in Blackpool to help improve literacy and educational achievement through working with exciting authors. The day was filled with book passion, enthusiasm, smiles and the love of reading. I had a brilliant time – I cannot recommend this festival enough.

Best of the rest

A mixed bag. I’ve even snuck in a few pictures off the library van where some of my long-standing borrowers first got their mitts on Defender.

Also, I have a new Facebook author page. If you haven’t visited yet, please do and give it a Like. Cheers.
